Attorney-General Mukul Rohatgi has requested the Narendra Modi government not to consider him for reappointment to the office of the country's seniormost government law officer.

Rohatgi told TOI that that he had enjoyed a fantastic relationship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and the bureaucracy during the three-year period as AG, but now wants to get back to private practice.


Talking to ANI, Rohatgi said he does not want to seek to continue as the AGI for the second-term. He added that he hopes the apex court will reconsider its NJAC decision some day. The country's top law officer wanted to enter into private practice. "I have conveyed to the government last month that I don't wish to seek re-appointment". He along with solicitor general Ranjit Kumar were granted extension by the government on June 3. Rohatgi, away in London, is learnt to have communicated his wish to the government in a letter soon after the Supreme Court completed hearing in the triple talaq matter. In 1999, he was assigned the post of the additional solicitor general by the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government.

The son of former Delhi High Court judge Justice Awadh Behari Rohatgi, Mr Rohatgi earlier represented the Gujarat government in the Supreme Court regarding the 2002 Gujarat riots, and cases involving Zahira Sheikh and the Best Bakery.
